Chain Gang - Thursday 27th June

Chain gang will be running as usual this week. Departing form Brockenhurst at 1900.

I have had a thought about alternative courses for the chain gang and now that the resurfacing of the airfield road from Janesmoor Pond across Ocknell's Plain has bedded down thought that might make a good alternative. Road is pretty quiet in the evening and the wind makes the chain gang training important and effective. I'd appreciate others thoughts on this. The road is 2.5 miles long and it would give riders the opportunity to drop off and re-join if the pace was too high and the option for doing as many loops as riders wanted. Car park at Janesmoor Pond would make a good meeting point.

Please share your thoughts and if there's a consensus we can start alternating the course.

I'll be missing Thursday 4th and 11th but happy to make those changes from the 18th.

Club Ride - Saturday 15th June

This weeks club ride is a relatively easy 50 mile loop starting from Brockenhurst at 0900 Saturday, therefore not too hard for anybody wishing to ride Saturday and Sunday on the birthday ride.

Route will be:

Brock, Hatchet Pond, Bucklers Hard, East End, Lymington, Sway, Burley, Bransgore, Poulner, Moyles Court and then either:

a) Back to Brock via Bolderwood for 50 miles
b) Additional loop around Hyde is the group wants another 10 miles or so and an extra hill

Hope to see you Saturday AND Sunday

Thursday Night Chain Gang - 13th June

Chain Gang will be running tomorrow as usual. Depart form Brockenhurst at 1900 sharp.

The weather forecast is for the showers to clear by 18/1900 so hopefully a clear ride. Please bring lights and something hi vis though as there are no guarantees of timings.
